Re: Aruba January

Well.... I am booked for next week, so we shall see how it goes. I will have a rental car, so I can drive to where ever is best to kite. I did learn you need to book a car quick this time of year. You scared me, price did raise quite a lot but after clearing cookies in browser or opening incognito ...

Re: Favourite Foot Straps & Pads Combination

I have naish apex and like them. my shoe size is 10.5 43/44 and I fit easily with 2mm or 5mm booties. Some of my friend with thick fit had to extend the strap at the local tailor. Most people like naish apex, you can fine tune the strap with 4 attachment points, in addition you can move strap toward...

Re: Aruba January

Thanks JeromeL for the info. I have not booked yet, but I would like to hear from others and their thoughts. I also read in older posts that fishermans hut you can't kite thru the day, not sure that applied years ago. I'm pretty sure that's an old rule. My friend went in 2014 and could kite all day.

Re: You know it's a good day....

You know it's going to be a good day when your driving to the beach and as you spot the water you get knots and butterfly in your belly and prey that you will finish session injury free. You know you had a good session when you wished you brought that unopened 7m you left in your garage. when you fl...

Re: Aruba January

Going there end of Jan, hope it will be good. Planning to stay at Fishermen Huts, I don't mind gusty offshore and don't really want to drive to Boca Grande since I will be hanging out with the wife. Friends who have been there last year were saying that offshore in Fisherman huts is not really an is...

Re: Shorten the Chicken L. on 2015 Best GP-bar?

Has anyone ever tried shortening the chicken loop on a best GP bar? I expect you can buy a shorter loop, but wondering whether it is possible to do a DIY job... Looks like it's pretty easy to do, if you have the right loop, it's definitely a diy job. http://www.bestkiteboarding.com/en-us/support/#v...

Re: Limit of height jumping

On wok you can kind of tell if you landed it. Anything above 6G landing is going to be hard to actually land without butt checking it.
Joshua did 7G on his 26m jump and also got some 9G landing! Pretty much each session get gets 7G landing, he is definitely pushing it.

My friend basically jump initiating a rotation but you can barely see them rotating, the rotation is very slow then midjump they throw their head to finish rotation. Another fri...
